Tim Freeman, President of Freeman Technology Inc., will present “Evaluating the Design Space for the Batch Manufacture of an OTC Medicine” at IFPAC 2015.
The presentation will show how a Quality by Design approach to wet granulation requires manufacturers to fully understand the relationships between processing variables, including powder/granule properties, and Critical Quality Attributes of the resultant solid dosage form in order to reliably define a Design Space.
The annual meeting will be held in Arlington, Washington D.C. from January 26th to 28th and visitors will also have the chance to meet the Freeman Technology team and see the FT4 Powder Rheometer® on booth #202.
The FT4 Powder Rheometer® is a universal powder tester, measuring bulk, shear and dynamic powder properties, and can test powders in consolidated, aerated and even fluidised states. The system delivers detailed, relevant and precise powder characterisation information that supports the rationalisation and optimisation of powder handling processes at every stage of pharmaceutical manufacture, from formulation through to Quality Control.
